David Zoob

Published by Nick Hern Books

An essential new book on putting into practice the theories of one of theatre's most influential directors and playwrights

Informative and accessible, it clearly explains Brecht's theories and shows how they can be applied not only to his plays but to many of the most important works in theatre

It offers a bold and exciting new approach to Bertolt Brecht to a new generation of actors, directors, students and theatre-makers, and includes dozens of exercises to help turn theory into practice

Written by the Head of Acting at Rose Bruford - one of the UK's leading Drama Schools - it demystifies Brecht's theories, and offers an approach to study and performance that can be applied to a wide range of texts and theatre styles, including a close analysis of texts by Shakespeare, Chekhov, Miller, Pinter, and of course Brecht

Whether you're a student, a teacher, an actor or a theatre-maker, this book will change the way you view and work with Brecht


"Zoob has engaged with Brecht's many and varied principles for a politicised theatre and channelled them into a wide range of novel and innovative exercises that are applicable to a great many dramas and can equally interrogate devised material Excellent" ~ David Barnett, Professor of Theatre, University of York
